The Latino Cultural Center is pleased to offer local Latino student bands the opportunity to win up to $5,000 in scholarships for their future education!

The Ford Foundation has generously donated funds for a Battle of the Bands to take place in conjunction with the American Sabor exhibition which will run at the LCC from March 24- June 17, 2012.

The American Sabor Battle of the Bands is targeted to reach Latino student based bands. There will be two categories for students to compete in: High School/Community Center and College/University bands. Bands must be comprised of students affiliated with a local high school, community center, college or university and bands must perform Latin/Hispanic music such as Latin Jazz, Spanish Rock, Reggeaton, Tejano, Spanish Hip-Hop (can be bilingual)etc.

While not all students in the band have to be Latino or of Hispanic heritage, we STRONGLY encourage Latino students to audition.
